El Camino Reelers: Square Dancing in Silicon Valley for the LGBTQ Community and friends

Happy New Year
from El Camino Reelers

Pastor Saia

We were saddened to learn of the passing on September 26th, 2020 of St. Andrews UMC's Pastor, Reverend Saia Faasisila. Pastor Saia had served at the church since 2015. Our condolences go out to the Pastor's family and the St. Andrews congregation.

We look forward to meeting the new pastor, Rev. Saulisi Kanongata'a, when we are able to resume activities at the church.

COVID-19 Update (12/18)

California's pandemic has hit a crisis point, with a shelter-in-place order reinstated for Santa Clara County and most other Bay Area counties. The order is in place until January 4, 2021.

Two Covid-19 vaccines have been approved by the FDA for immediate/emergency distribution. However, it may be several months before vaccine doses can be made available to most club members.

Read the county health order

We don't yet know which tier will allow square dancing. Most likely, indoor dancing will be deemed a Tier 4 (or Tier 5) activity, with the same restriction as exercise classes. We will discuss more specific potential reopening dates at a later date. We will send out a survey/poll to ECR members to ask what they would be comfortable doing and when. St. Andrews Church and the Billy DeFrank Center have still not reopened.


EL CAMINO REELERS is a modern Western Square Dance club, formed by lesbians and gay men in order to meet people, have fun, and learn to square dance. We dance to live callers using the Callerlab Mainstream, Plus, and Advanced programs.

LEARN TO SQUARE DANCE! It's a great way to meet active, open-minded, intelligent, and sometimes very silly people. We would love to welcome you to our club. Come to one of our monthly no experience required Fun Nights, or send a note to information@reelers.org and let us know you're interested.
